KBN in partnership with Christian Disaster Support Network (CDSN) are planning to offer "Encouragers Training". This training is for those interested in helping disaster affected regional communities such as framers and businesses.
CDSN has been doing a great job across Australia on a voluntary basis and need more volunteers who have a passion to do likewise. The introductory training (about 5 hours) is free but we will charge a nominal fee for venue and refreshments. We anticipate that this will not exceed $40 pp. We are currently seeking expression of interest and the course will be sometime last week of April. This is an amazing opportunity to bless and encourage our framers and regional business communities who are affected by bushfires, draught etc.
The Encouragers program is a series of training modules produced and presented by the Christian Disaster Support Network, designed to teach people to be Encouragers to those who are suffering.
Christian Disaster Support Network is a faith based organization and the Encouragers program is built from a faith perspective. It is our belief and experience that the ultimate source of all Encouragement is God, and it can only come through faith. The Encouragers program consists of ten specific modules, beginning with a general module teaching the broad principles of encouragement. The remaining modules deal with specific types of Encouragers, such as those who wish to be Spiritual Encouragers, or Business Encouragers and so on. The final module considers the self-preservation needs of the Encouragers themselves to ensure they do not burn out.
The modules aim to teach people ways in which they can be Encouragers to both individuals and communities. Our organization (CDSN) is primarily focussed on disasters, so the program discusses the need for encouragement from that perspective. However, the topics, skills and methodologies employed are sufficiently broad enough to be applicable to anyone seeking to learn about encouragement. The Encouragers Program is offered free of charge, other than the need to cover any costs that may arise from running the session (e.g. workbooks, hire of halls, refreshments, etc.)
We look forward to running the program for all who seek to join us to become better Encouragers and to be a blessing to those around them who are suffering in any way. For more info, you can also visit their website: http://cdsn.org.au/
